IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Provide a way to truncate master data tables similar to how transaction data is truncated via self-serve.

Similar to the "Reset Transaction Db" process on self-serve for OMoC there should also be a reset master data which would include all of the tables classified as MASTER or MASTER and TRANSACTION such as the YFS_ITEM table. There are times when it is beneficial to completely reset the data in an environment, the current tools only get part of the way there. This would leave the CONFIGURATION tables alone.

This will be used to easily truncate the MASTER data tables in OMS.

    If the data is completely reset, the environment will be rendered useless. All the master data needs to be reloaded and synched up. Precious data like user, permissions and org relationship will also be lost. No further operations are possible on the environment.

    manageItem calls with Action="Delete" is the recommended approach to handle YFS_ITEM.

    If there are still situations that requires frequent data clean up due to data corruptions, we would suggest you to raise a support ticket for our technical teams to review this and find a permanent solution that would address root cause.

    After assessing this ask, providing a master data clean up option is currently not feasible.
